The Official Cider of the 2021 Skagit Tulip Festival
Mount Vernon— 3/22/2021 — Ragged and Right Cider is pleased to announce the upcoming availability of Tulip Fest Cider, along with other ciders from Ragged and Right, a new seasonal limited release to coincide with the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival April 2021 and features a graphic based on the winning poster art of Jennifer McGill.
“The Tulip Festival Cider was an especially fun cider to make as it gave me a chance to work with blackberry honey, which has a very unique flavor. It adds both depth and character to the cider, with just the right flavors to remind us of springtime in the Valley,” said Jacob Mitchell, Head Cidermaker at Ragged and Right Cider.
About the Cider
Tulip Fest Cider starts with a base of Pinata apples from Cedardale Orchards in Mount Vernon and Honey from Valley Buzz, then blended with strawberry puree for a cider that is tart and slightly sweet (like the first berries of late spring). The cider pours a beautiful rosy blush and joins Ragged and Right’s lineup of fully flavored, fruit infused ciders, such as Full Flat Peach and Blackberry Tango. Ragged and Right is the sister cidery of Farmstrong Brewing in Mount Vernon and is a proud Veteran Owned business. Ragged and Right Cider/ Farmstrong Brewing is committed to using Skagit Valley ingredients as much as possible.
“Ragged and Right has done a great job showcasing their ingredients as true to flavor.” said Mercedes Santaella-Lam. “Their peach cider is a great representation of the flavor of ripe, juicy peaches without being cloying or saccharine.”
